Learning Tarot is easy...

Yes, that's right. Learning Tarot cards is easy. Very easy.

All you have to do is know the fundamental basics, such as:

  • Formulating your question. You must ask a clear precise question on order to get the maximum possible clear and precise answer. For example, questions like "What's wrong with me?" aren't very clear and precise. However, questions like "What exactly can I do to have more fun?" are more clear and precise. Once you gain more experience, you can ask vague questions and get very clear answers - but that comes with experience.

  • Laying out Tarot cards. After you ask the question, you lay out Tarot cards in a spread. There are many types of spreads and you can pick whatever spread corresponds with your question. This part is easy and down to the point. Next...

  • Looking at the cards and getting the meaning. Ah, here comes the fun part! You are excited (or worried!) to look at the card to see which ones came up for your answers. Have you ever had THIS situation? You flip the cards, you look at them, but it all seems like a bunch of mess!!! Queen of Swords? 8 of Wands?? The Tower??? What does this combination mean in regards to your question?

You may even have that little Tarot booklet that comes with the cards. You look it up... You may get some keywords like "powerful female" for Queen of Swords. "a message" for 8 of Wands and "Destruction" for Tower.

What??

How does all of this answer your question "What exactly can I do to have more fun?"

Get a powerful female? Send messages? Destroy things? Maybe... But highly unlikely...

That's why I say: learning Tarot is easy. But... Here comes an important point:

But... Understanding Tarot can be harder!!!

Yes, it is all about UNDERSTANDING Tarot.

To be more precise, it is about understanding the messages of the Tarot in regards to a particular questions you asked.

See, for example, in one case, a Tower card can mean a destruction and in the other case - a change. Also, there are cases where it can mean Mars energy, getting rid of old habits, victory, punishment and the list can go on.

So, how can you in the World know what it means in your case in regards to your question?

In order to answer this question, I want you to remember that you are practicing being a psychic. Therefore, it comes to your INTUITION. Usually, you would get a nearly instant intuitive message about the card. But what most people do is start to logically analyze the message, question it, doubt it and in just few seconds, the whole reading becomes a mess.

In my Become Psychic Now Course, I teach you tips, tricks and even give powerful spells to develop your intuition, so you master an instant interpretation of any situation. Yes, it does take some practice. But not as long as most people think.

Let's get back to the business of the question: "What exactly can I do to have more fun?" where you draw Queen of Swords, 8 of Wands and a Tower card.

How can this quickly be interpreted?

Here is my interpretation of such a combination: Queen of Swords signifies your mental attitude towards hard work and no play. It shows that you take too much responsibilities and allow others to put their responsibilities on yourself, creating an overload. Queen of Swords is not a playful part of personality. It is opposite of that.

Therefore, in order to have more fun in your life, you must set boundaries. You must clearly analyze which responsibilities are yours and which are imposed on you. Watch out for the feelings of guilt because Queen of Swords indicates your thoughts of guilt should you choose to say "no" to someone. It also expresses your "help" as external power and pride, while deep inside, you may feel powerless and guilty while declining someone's burden.

It is a mental game you play with yourself which puts a heavy restriction on your creative, fun and playful side.

Queen of Swords also signifies that you try to be someone others would want to see you. You try to appear in the position of power with "can do" attitude. School success, career, money, control, stubbornness and rigidity are the qualities that you express very well on the outside. Others view you as a person in status.

However, deep inside, you neglect and suppress your creative desires. Get in touch with your feelings by shutting down your overloaded mind. Simply sit down on the chair or lay comfortably in bed, let your mind wonder without paying any attention to it and in just few minutes you'll be connected to your feelings.

Listen to your feelings and acknowledge them. Remember them. What is it that your feelings want you to do? What is your soul yearning for? What are your feelings telling you that you are neglecting? Remember, it is about the balance of mind and feelings. Once you feel this balance, you'll see how fun will start to surface up and your life will be filled with more productivity than you even thought possible!

8 of Wands just reconfirms the previous suggestion and gives you directions to look for.

With 8 of Wands, you are suggested to look closer at your romantic side of life - something you've been neglecting. Pursuing life success should not interfere with your romantic side of life, but in this case - it shows that this is what you do. Also, 8 of Wands clearly signifies an upcoming romance and the message in here is not to shut yourself down once the opportunity clearly presents itself.

Allow yourself to get lost with someone special who is coming into your life. Do not worry about losing your productivity. The trick is simply establishing the balance and not going into extremes. And you perfectly know how to do that. Just don't be afraid to actually physically express it rather than just mentally think about it.

With 8 of Wands, you also get great improvement in your sex life. While Queen of Swords indicates an internal state of isolation, with 8 of Wands you'll be able to let go of some guards and enjoy greater, sexier, more romantic times. Passion and spontaneity will be entering your life and you'll greatly enjoy it.

You'll also be taking more travel but not somewhere far. Expect short trips outside the town.

Overall, with 8 of Wands, your life is getting on a much better direction. Just do not willingly block your fun as you are prone to doing that which Queen of Swords indicates.

Now comes a very important message with the Tower card. This is something you want ti pay attention to. The Tower car shows that you must seriously allow your creative side come into play. Otherwise, such changes will be forced upon you.

If you continue to live in rigidity, you will start losing control. It will be too much. You can take only so much. And the time when line is getting crossed is coming.

The sooner you make the conscious choice to allow yourself to indulge in your desires, the better. Otherwise, your subconscious desires will start to override your created personality and collapse it piece by piece. It will lead to the opposite extreme and you may become very tired of responsibilities.

The Tower card in combination with 8 of Wands powerfully suggests you to take ACTION. Not just think things over, but to take action on discovering your feelings and desires - and then, proceeding to fulfill them.

It also tells you to take action on having fun when opportunities come rather than thinking it over and finding excuses to decline. "Just do it" is the motto in here.

Again, remember, you'll be very surprised how much more productive AND fulfilled your life will be once you find a balance between work and play. With such a powerful combination of cards, you do get the success. All it requires from you is simple behavioral change of ALLOWING yourself to be a happy human.

DONE!

As you can see, once you UNDERSTAND Tarot cards, you quickly understand what is going on.

You quickly interpret things.

You quickly master and maneuver the situations like a fish freely maneuvers itself in the water.

While others feel stuck, twisting their brains on "what does this mean", you flow with the psychic messages like a clean channel of Divine information!

How To Become Psychic

"Clairvoyance is not the art of seeing, but an art of understanding" - Master PlutoCraft

In order to be a true psychic, one must UNDERSTAND what is going on when reading Tarot.

Having just psychic abilities isn't enough. You must know what to do with these abilities.

It's like having a tool box doesn't necessarily mean someone knows how to use the tools.

Earlier, you took a quick glimpse at how to understand Tarot cards. And now you are wondering, "So, how do I become psychic?"

Here is a quick answer to this question:

  1. Understand that psychic abilities are already built in you. In fact, they are one of the greatest disciples of your mind. However, since they are not used on consistent bases, they are "at sleep". There is no need to be born as psychic, "install" some so-called special mind programs or go through extensive schools and training.

  2. There are certain spells that can quickly help you to resurrect (re-awake) your psychic abilities. Once it is done, you can start sensing information quickly and easily.

  3. And here comes the most important part: you must learn how to interpret this information. Without learning how to interpret psychic information, all you will be doing is "sensing". Interpretation can be challenging or it can be a fun practice.

Here is another important point: tools such as pendulums, Tarot cards, crystal balls and so on are used as help to interpret psychic information. One of my favorite and most frequently used tools is a deck of Tarot cards.

I have a lot of beginners asking me how to become psychic. There is no quick process to become one. However, there is a process that is fun, easy and most importantly - extremely effective. It is like a system. That's why I wrote a course called Become Psychic Now.

Read it, study it and very shortly, you'll be "flying" with your psychic abilities!

Divination

As Wikipedia suggests, divination (from Latin divinare "to foresee, to be inspired by a god", related to divinusdivine) is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of an occultic, standardized process or ritual.

What is occult? Shortly said, it is a belief in the use of supernatural powers and phenomena.

Please note something interesting about divination: the divination method of casting lots (Cleromancy) was used by the remaining eleven disciples of Jesus in Acts 1:23-26 to select a replacement for Judas Iscariot.

Despite that it was used by the remaining disciples of Jesus, it later got forbidden by church.

A lot of people think that divination is consulting dead or devil for information.

But this is very far from being true, unless someone purposely wants to consult dead or devil for information.

Actually, the way I teach divination and how to read Tarot cards is completely opposite. You consult the God part!

The interesting fact about divination is that you already do it daily.

How?

For example, whenever you think "I wonder if...", you are asking your mind to look into something that is unknown.

"I wonder if he still loves me" is like a command for your mind to search for information on psychic realm and bring you impressions that you can interpret.

Sure, you aren't probably using any divination tools at this point, but divination can be done without tools. Once you get enough practice and experience, divination becomes a daily and natural thing you do, rather than something abnormal.

Mysticism

"There is a single main definition of the object of all magical Ritual. It is the uniting of the Microcosm with the Macrocosm. The Supreme and Complete Ritual is therefore the Invocation of the Holy Guardian Angel; or, in the language of Mysticism, Union with God."

-- Aleister Crowley, in Magick Book IV : Liber ABA, Part III : Magick in Theory and Practice (1929)

Mysticism is a vague term with many different meanings throughout history. In general, it is used to describe secret practices and knowledge, usually in the form of a cult or mystery religion.

Here are some quick facts that give you an idea of what Mysticism is:

Mystics traditionally focus on human transformation. This includes actions as varied as religious ecstasy (periods of alternate states of consciousness) and the practice of living a dedicated spiritual life.

More recently, mysticism has been defined as aiming for "union with the Absolute, the Infinite, or God" (Dan Merkur, Mysticism, Encyclopedia Britannica).

If that doesn't satisfy you, a more complete definition is: "Mysticism (from the Greek, mystikos, an initiate of a mystery religion) is the pursuit of communion with, identification with, or conscious awareness of an ultimate Reality, Divinity, spiritual Truth, or God through direct experience, intuition, instinct or insight." (Mysticism, Wikiquote).

Forms of mysticism around the world include Christian, Jewish (Kabbalah), Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Tantra, and Taoist. Mysticism also includes Occultism, Theosophy, and Transcendentalism. (See what I mean about vague?)

The title of mysticism has been applied from early esoteric Christianity all the way to modern Perennial philosophy (the idea that each of the world's religions share a universal truth and fundamental mystical experience).

Mysticism does not necessarily have to be religious. There is such a thing as non-religious mysticism, the most popular being oneness with Nature.

To put it bluntly: Mysticism is a catch-all word for "hidden" traditions and spiritual experiences. Exactly how these experiences and practices are defined is still debated to this day.

It's a good idea not to take the word "mysticism" too seriously. It is often used to make something appear rare or special in order to gain "initiates", status, and money. This isn't always true, but it's definitely something to watch out for.

"The explicable requires the inexplicable. Experience requires the nonexperienceable. The obvious requires the mystical."

-- Buckminster Fuller

(Note: Extra quotes.)

It is something to have smelt the mystic rose,

Although it break and leave the thorny rods,

It is something to have hungered once as those

Must hunger who have ate the bread of gods.

-- G. K. Chesterton, in "The Great Minimum" in Poems (1922)

"We are dealing with mystic experience. I mean mystic experience taken in its immediacy, apart from all interpretation. True mystics simply open their souls to the oncoming wave. Sure of themselves, because they feel within them something better than themselves, they prove to be great men of action, to the surprise of those for whom mysticism is nothing but visions, and raptures and ecstasies."

-- Henri Bergson, in Deux sources de la morale et de la religion [The two sources of morality and religion] (1935), Ch. 3 : Dynamic Religion

Parapsychology

Parapsychology (once known as "psychical research") is the study and scholarly research of unusual or paranormal phenomena in connection with the mind. 

Parapsychologists are not the same thing as psychics or mediums. This is a common misconception. A parapsychologist is the person who seriously /studies/ these kinds of psychic experiences. 

Areas of study include:

Psychokinesis (the ability to "control" matter with one's mind)

ESP (Extra Sensory Perception)

Telepathy (communicating mentally)

Hypnotism (trance, alternate states of consciousness, etc.)

Clairvoyance and Remote Viewing (attaining and understanding knowledge at a distance beyond natural sight)

Precognition (information acquired from or about the future)

Telemetry (reading information about a person from their belongings)

Near-Death and Out of Body Experiences (this includes topics like reincarnation, consciousness after death, and astral projection)

Apparitions (essentially ghosts, poltergeist activity, and related entities)

In many scientific circles, parapsychology is considered to be a pseudoscience. This means that the scientific community general believes this area of study to be false, because the results of its research have not been satisfactorily proven. This is largely due to the fact that parapsychological theories go against the known laws of physics. Not to mention all of the frauds out there.

Bur why do people study this stuff if it goes against physics and popular opinion? Well, parapsychologists believe that we still have much to learn and discover in this universe, including what we know of physics. A good parapsychologist is open-minded while engaging in dedicated, solid research into the unknown.

And a final fun fact to leave you with: Did you know there's an area study that's the reverse of parapsychology? It's known as anomalistic psychology. This is the psychological study of paranormal experiences with the assumption that there is a perfectly natural explanation for them. You could call it the skeptics approach to the paranormal.

I like to think we're all on the same side -- looking for answers where so far there have been none!

Oracles - What They Are And Aren't

There are a few ways to define oracles, so let's keep it simple. These are the three different things a person may be talking about when they use the word "oracle": 

1. People who are considered to be oracles or mediums.

2. The prophecies oracles make.

3. The tools that a psychic uses for readings (for example, oracle cards).

In ancient times, an oracle was a person consulted for their vast wisdom, knowledge, and ability to perceive the future. Everyone from citizens to kings sought oracles for answers. The Greeks in particular were well-known for working with oracles to make crucial decisions. 

An oracle is different from a seer. A seer interprets the signs of the gods, while an oracle is actually a vessel through which the gods (or a particular god) speak by way of prophecies.

• You've probably heard of the famous oracle at the Temple of Apollo in Delphi. The tradition of the Delphic Oracle began around 800 B.C. The priestess who spoke the words of Apollo was known as The Pythia. This priestess wore a laurel crown and sat on a tripod over the vapors of Mt. Parnassus. The Delphic Oracle practice lasted over a thousand years!

• Another powerful group was the Sybylline Oracles. This was a group of women who prophecied divine information that was recorded in Greek hexameter.

• A person who unofficially compiled and interpreted oracles was known as a chresmologue or a mantis. These practitioners weren't as venerated as the oracles, but they did provide answers and information for the common people.

• Did you know that oracles are consulted in Tibetan Buddhism? Yes, even to this day the Dalai Lama speaks with two different oracles: the Nechung Oracle and Tenma Oracle.


What Are Oracular Tools?

You'd be surprised at how many different tools are used for oracle reading. Some are thousands of years old, while other have been developed within the last 20 years. The art of divination is always evolving :)

• The Chinese have used oracle bones and the I Ching ("Book of Changes") since 1600 BC! This practice is also closely related to geomancy.

• In Norse mythology, the all-father Odin hung from the world tree and lost an eye in order to gain the knowledge of the divinatory Runes. The practice of using runes for divination and oracles continues to this day.

• Today, you can get many different kinds of Oracle cards. These are similar to Tarot Cards, but do not use the same set of suits and symbols. There are oracle cards for faeries, dragons, angels, animals, dreams, emotions, and many more.

• One of the most famous fortune-tellers of all time is Marie Anne Lenormand of France. It is said that she gave readings to powerful people, including Alexander I and Empress Josephine. She did not exclusively use the tarot, but practiced the larger craft of card reading (cartomancy). For this reason, many attribute the origin of oracle cards to her.


Tips for How to Read Oracle Cards:

These steps are very similar to those you follow when doing any sort of divination, but it's always good to be reminded of them!

• Be sure to cleanse yourself and your space before doing any kind of divination.

• Work in a quiet space. No distractions and preferably no electronics (unless they are necessary).

• Protect yourself. An easy way to do this is to light a protection candle and/or cast a circle of energy to keep out unwanted influences (it's called a circle, but it's best to visualize it as a sphere).

• Be respectful. When you're finished, remember to give thanks to the energies/beings you have calledon for help.

• Cleanse your cards after every reading. This doesn't have to be a complex ritual. A simple prayer, mantra, or mental intent to clear energies will do.

• Be sure to snuff any candles, close your circle, and clear any excess energies when you are done.

• If you feel the need, cleanse yourself and your space again.

Are Oracles Same As Tarot Cards?

No. Oracle cards are not same as Tarot cards. Tarot cards are much more STRUCTURED than oracles.

Let me give you an example. Let's say you read Oracles. You draw a "Ship" card. You interpret it from that standpoint. It can mean arrival, departure, adventure...

When it comes to Tarot cards, usually, arrival would be signified by The World card, Departure - by 6 of Swords and Adventure by Chariot card.

Remember - Tarot cards are more precise, specific and signify much clearer messages. They are also build on a story of The Fool taking an adventurous discovery.

However, it all depends on a reader. It does not mean that Tarot cards are harder to read. Remember that I teach you all the time throughout this website: clairvoyance is not an ability to see, but it is an ability to understand.

Therefore, it doesn't matter which tool you use: Oracles or Tarot. What matters is YOUR mastery. However, if you want to read EASIER with MUCH GREATER PRECISION, pick Tarot! And yes, study Oracles too just to expand your expertise! It will be very fun altogether! 

Unexplained Phenomena - It's Interesting!

You've likely heard many stories of unexplained phenomena. We're naturally attracted to mysteries and that which lies beyond scientific, human understanding. 

Humanity has pondered these questions for centuries. Is there life after death? (This can be seen in the popularity of things like ghosts, zombies, and vampires) Are we alone in the Universe? 

Unexplained phenomena are like puzzles that have yet to be solved - and may never be!

Examples of Unexplained Phenomena:

• An unexplained celebrity is Big Foot - the hairy, man-like creature that people claim to have seen in America. The only proof of Big Foot are testimonies from witnesses and low quality footage.

• The Loch Ness monster is another creature that has yet to be entirely disproven. Nessie is said to reside in a gigantic lake in the Scottish Highlands.

• Creatures like Nessie, Sasquatch, and the Yeti are known as cryptids. These are animals or plants that people believe exist but which have not been found or researched by scientists. The study of these particular mysteries is called Cryptozoology.

• The Bermuda Triangle, or the Devil's Triangle, is known for all of the ships and planes that have disappeared in its waters. Many of these incidents remain unexplained.

• In the desert of Taos, New Mexico roughly 2% of the population hear a constant, low resonance hum or buzz. No one knows where this sound comes from. These kinds of low-frequency noises have been reported all over the world.

Spontaneous Human Combustion is particularly controversial due to the various theories that cannot be proven. Basically, SHC is when a person burns, smokes, or is completely engulfed in flames without any identifiable source of ignition. The fire never moves beyond the body. For example, a victim may burn to death while their clothes are barely singed. 

Ghosts, hauntings, miracles, aliens, and UFOs are all considered to be unexplained phenomena.

You may have noticed that many of these Unexplained Phenomena overlap with what Parapsychologists research. However, remember that Parapsychologists generally do not study things like aliens and UFOs.

Why do people pursue Unexplained Phenemona? Some say it is because they want to believe in something more than the mundane. Others say it is the lure of the unknown. Whatever the reason, life is certainly far more interesting with the unexplained!

The Art Of Geomancy

What is Geomancy?

The art of Geomancy or "Earth Divination" is a technique used to interpret the signs and patterns created by earth, rocks, sand and other objects. There are many different ways of doing this. The traditional method involves drawing points in the sand or on paper while thinking of your question, then using a geomantic chart to interpret the resulting symbols.

How you interpret the results depends on the tools and symbols you use, as well as the guide you use to explain their meaning. There are all different kinds of way to go about geomancy. The two major traditions are those of Middle Eastern practitioners and it's evolution into European geomancy - which continues to evolve to this day!

Quite often astrology and geomancy overlap. This made it easier for people to accept and use the technique when it first came to Europe. In fact, some geomantic interpretations are based on the 12 houses of the zodiac. Combining astrology with divination is a wonderful way to gain further insight.

When it comes down to it, the skill of a geomancer is in interpreting patterns in order to divine the past, present, and future. This requires dedication to the art of divination and reverence for the Earth.

Fun Facts About Geomancy

Geomancy is a practice that harmonizes the connection between human consciousness and the Earth. Many take this further to include Nature, Spirits, and even the Universe as a whole. However it is practiced, it is a deeply spiritual art.

The name Geomancy comes from an Ancient Greek word, geomanteía, which means "foresight by earth".

One origin myth of Geomancy claims that Hermes Trismegistus -- the father of Hermeticism, also known as the prophet Idris -- was instructed in the art by the angel Jibril. This sacred knowledge was later recorded in a book, either by Hermes himself or by another whom he taught.

In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, divination by geomancy spanned all social classes and could even be found throughout Europe and Africa.

Geomancy was one of the many taboo magical arts practiced during the Rennaisance. It ranked among pyromancy, hydromancy, aeromancy, chiromancy, and necromancy.

Occultists from Henry Cornelius Agrippa to the infamous Aleister Crowley have written on the topic of Geomancy.

Geomantic Charts

Surprisingly, traditional geomancy can be a somewhat complicated process. It requires drawing sixteen lines of symbols at random while focusing on your question. Then these symbols are systematically rearranged into a chart (this is called a "shield chart").

There are six rows in a shield chart. These are: 

Four Mothers (matres)

Four Daughters (filiae)

Four Nieces (nepotes)

Two Witnesses (testes)

One Judge (iudex)

One Reconciler (superiudex)

The chart is created from top to bottom, and each row is generated by rearranging the figures in the row above it.

So, yes, it does take a bit of logic to generate your geomantic chart!

Interpreting the chart is the last step, and relies strongly on the ability of the geomancer.

Do I Have to Use Geomantic Charts and Symbols?

No. Geomancy is practiced in many different ways. Some people do not use symbols at all. Instead, they practice being attuned to Nature, the spirits that guard or reside in a location, and - of course - communicated with the Earth itself. Through unobstructed intuition, practice, and innate psychic ability, it is possible to do divination anywhere at any time!

In fact, geomancy has been linked to various practices like sacred geometry, feng shui, dowsing, and ley lines. All of these traditions involve working with the Earth and its natural energies. Your ability to perceive these energies and understand what they are telling you is the key to success.
